Case Study: pan-European purchasing hub with Brammer Inline

Brammer supplies engineering products and services to manufacturers across Europe.
They required a multi-lingual purchasing hub capable of enabling each of its European business units to locate, purchase and deliver products to each of its separate warehouses located across Europe.

Brammer chose netvoyager ís internet based procurement solution to link the different business systems across the organisation.
